pCP Team 10 July 2021 pCP 8.0.0
Please try the new version piCorePlayer 2.04 Changes # Support for RPi3B. Supports the onboard Wifi on RPi3B. No need for external USB Wifi dongle any longer (on RPi3B). Update kernel to 4.1.20. Updated piCore to 7.1 beta3. Improved LMS/pCP control tabs. A new tweak for problematic USB DACs - might help if USB DAC looses connection after prolonged use. The pCP Team Paul, Greg, Ralphy and Steen
Download #Please try the new version piCorePlayer 2.03 Great news. Paul from the TinyCore and Logitech forums has joined the pCP Team. Thanks to him, Logitech Media Server (LMS) can now be installed and run on your piCorePlayer. This means that pCP now can be used as: Standalone pCP player (as usual). Standalone LMS server - it is very easy to setup a LMS server on your Raspberry Pi (RPi1 or RPi2).
Download #Please try the new version piCorePlayer 2.02 Because of changes at sourceforge you will have problems updating directly - so you need to apply the Sourceforge fix which is described here: Squeezebox forum before being able to update to pCP 2.02. Changes # Sourceforge fixes. Enhanced ALSAequal sliders with number, and more robust selection of card number and selection of “equal”. Jivelite piCorePlayer applet update. Improved insitu_update, so now it won’t overwrite user customization.
Download #Please try the new version piCorePlayer 2.01. We have many ideas on how to improve pCP in the coming months. For now we have included a ALSA equaliser, which you can enable and control from within pCP. Changes # ALSA equalizer can be enabled. This is especially important for you if you use a integrated amplifier such as the HiFiBerryAMP or IQaudIO AMP, as these amplifiers don’t have a equalizer.
Hi all. We are ready to release a major update to piCorePlayer - so we decided to call it version 2.00 and start a new thread . The old thread is huge and has been read more than 700.000 times, therefore it is time for a new thread . So thank you all for your continued interest and support. Major changes are # Only one version of piCorePlayer, but it can now run on all known Raspberry Pi boards.
Download #Please try the new release piCorePlayer 1.22. Ralphy has been a great support and help during the development - so thank you very much. IMPORTANT: The new Jivelite and Squeezelite are large packages, therefore, if you update from a previous version, you might be running out of space. So I recommend that the first thing you do after updating piCorePlayer is to increase the available space: Select the [Beta] tab in the bottom of the Main webpage.
Finally, we succeeded to support the new official Raspberry Pi 7" touch screen. With the help from Ralphy (from the Squeezebox forum) and bmarkus (from the piCore team) we managed to get the new 7" Touch Screen working with piCorePlayer, so now you can use Jivelite and piCorePlayer will be almost like a original Squeezebox Touch. So please try piCorePlayer 1.21g. Changes # Improved the mount/unmount behaviour. Fixed a problem with selecting audio output in RPiA.
Thanks to all your bug reports, Greg and I are releasing a new version piCorePlayer 1.21b. Changes # The update process required a reboot in order for the I2S-DACs to be loaded. Resulting in “Squeezelite not running” after first boot - this is now done automatically the first time you start after an in situ update. This also fixed a host name problem. The newconfig.cfg file was not removed after an in situ update, which probably is the cause of some of the inconsistent problems we are seeing - should be fixed now.
New piCorePlayer 1.21a ready. Note But first I owe you all an apology. Unfortunately all 1.21 users will find that you are unable to do in situ update - sorry about that. If you are using piCorePlayer 1.21 You will need to burn the 1.21a img directly to the SD card. If you are using piCorePlayer 1.19 or older you can update from the web pages as always. Changes # Kernel updated with the most recent fixes (4.
[DELETED September 10] New version 1.21 is ready. [Please notice this version was removed as it had a nasty bug so future updates from this version was not possible.] Changes # Kernel updated to 4.1.6 with a possible important USB fix for those using Schitt Modi 2 audio box (or similar). Added tab, so it is easy to jump from one piCorePlayer to another present in your system. Re-added the controls allowing you to skip tracks and adjust volume up/down.
